the man you spoke with yesterday, senator john mccain. >> reporter: exactly. there's an announcement scheduled for this afternoon from this bipartisan group of senators about agreement in principle in sweeping changes of immigration law. and a lot of optimism, this could be passed even with a very controversial path to citizenship for those in the country illegally. senator john mccain telling your "this week" show yesterday, he thinks the time is right, especially given the power of latino voters in the last election. >>> let's get the rest of the morning headlines from david muir, weekend anchor in for josh. >> good morning, everyone. we're going to begin with the search for answers after that horrific nightclub tragedy. 230 were trapped and killed in a fire that engulfed a dance club in brazil. one exit became a death trap in seconds. matt gutman is in brazil with new details on how the fire started and why there was no other way out. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, david. it is impossible to underestimate the impact that has had in brazil. look at the headlines. banner h
, this appears to be the very first time senator john mccain has signed onto one of the president's legislative priorities, and you may be surprised to learn that republicans have made this sudden shift from previous immigration proposals such as herman cain's electrified fence and mitt romney's stance of self-deportation. after all, it wasn't even a year ago that congressman steve king of iowa compared america's immigrant selection process to that of picking out a dog. >> pick the one that's the friskiest, the one that's engaged the most, and not the one that's over there sleeping in the corner. you get the pick of the litter, and yourself a pretty good bird dog. we got the pick of every darn civilization on the planet. >> right, pick work dogs, not lazy dogs from those donor countries. congressman king said later his remarks were meant as a compliment. charming. so there has been an evolution by the republican party and it's not because rick perry accused anyone of not having a heart. senator mccain, how about some of that famous straight talk? >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at
stands made him a very effective player. i think it was no coincidence that john boehner wanted him to be -- >> in the room. >> in the room. >> if there was one area that it seemed that no matter what he tried this didn't work, it was housing. what did he say about that? >> i didn't talk to him about housing, though i've heard him speak about housing before. andssential argument was that the money used in stabilizing the housing market could be much more effectively used in a fiscal stimulus. so trying to public money into rea reducing foreclosures -- >> they put -- >> they put relatively little amount of money. his argument was that money was much better spent on the payroll tax cut or on the stimulus package. >> the other message was that he said the parties aren't that far apart. they seemed to be fairly close and then the republicans seemed to walk away from that deal the second time. what did he mean by that? >> i think what he means is that given what we did on spending last year, given this tax increase that we got, we've essentially done three quarters of the problem. the re
one of the senators behind the bipartisan plan, john mccain. he's here to talk about immigration, guns, the upcoming confirmation hearing for defense secretary nominee chuck hagel, john mccain live this hour. >>> plus, a royal shake-up. a queen announces she's abdicating. her country is about to get a new king. >>> i'm wolf blitzer. >>> i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> a new push to tackle one of the most contentious issues facing washington. just about 90 minutes or so ago, a bipartisan group of senators laid out a framework for an immigration reform bill. this comes as the white house is working on its own immigration bill and president obama will address the issue tomorrow in las vegas. the bipartisan senate plan includes a path to citizenship, but illegal immigrants will have to undergo a background check and pay a fine and back taxes before gaining legal status in the united states. all that is contingent on securing borders. the proposal provides for increased use of drones, more personnel and improved infrastructure and
. senator john mccain says things will be different this time. >> i'll give you a straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatic will i the hispanic vote which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons, and we've got to understand that. >> this plan would enable illegal immigrants who are already here in the country to gain legal status if they have no criminal background, though they would still have goat in back of the line to gate citizenship. it would also allow foreign workers who have high skills like engineers to come to the country and get visas. the president, we're told by the white house, is pleased with the proposal, and he's going to be making his case for sweeping immigration reform in las vegas tomorrow. >> nancy cordes, thank you. >>> washington is above about last night's "60 minutes" where they saw president obama and c secretary clinton sitting down. they talked about the challenges of putting aside their once heated rivalry. >> i spent time with both of you in the 2008 campaign. that was a very touch, bitter rac
a demonstration and he could go out and he and john boehner could do a rack of clay pidgeons and see who comes out on top. >> megyn: can you imagine what would happen if he did that. john kerry tried to get himself a picture with the ducks and lost endlessly, they're not-- >> the ducks were killed. and the president demonstrating i'm not against the family traditions of hunting and not allowing the fact that a lot of people do hunting, but not against the tradition of hunting, but people on the pro second amendment side of this say this has nothing to do with killing birds or shooting clay pidgeons, this has everything to do with tyranny and the government and individuals and empowerment of individuals. so the gap just gets wider and wider and wider. >> megyn: yeah. chris stirewalt, thank you, sir. >> you bet. >> megyn: as we mentioned a moment ago, there was some powerful testimony today on the issue of gun control in hartford, connecticut came from a man named mark mattioli who lost his son, remember the picture his sweet child. his father spoke passionately about his son, the shooting of the is
of this is the president just nominated john brener top counterterrorism adviser to be head of the cia and brennan in a lot of ways has been the guy on drones. he is at the center of the drone policy so on the one hand you are getting a lot of pushback from the left from people opposed to drone use about his nomination. on the other hand, the reporting is from "the washington post" and other places that he actually has been a huge voice of restraint and a voice advocating for moving that program from the cia to the military according to a recent post article. they said that brennan is leading efforts to curtail the cia's primary responsibility for targeting killings over opposition of the agency arguing to focus on intelligence agencies and leave lethal action to the more traditional home in the military where the law requires greater transparency. so, if john brennan is confirmed, it is interesting to see if there's a move to greater transparency and to moving the program from the cia to the military. >> absolutely, yeah. all right. >>> shifting gears a bit here up next the
it amounted to amnesty for illegal immigrants. gop senator john mccain says things will be different this time. >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons, and we've got to understand that. >> this plan would enable illegal immigrants who have no criminal background to gain temporary legal status so they could stay in the country even as they get on the back of the line for citizenship. it would also allow highly skilled foreign workers like engineers to be able to get visas to come to this country more easily. the white house says the president is pleased with the proposal, and he's going to be making his case for comprehensive immigration reform in a speech in las vegas tomorrow. norah and charlie? >> nancy cordes thank you. >>> washington is abuzz about last night's "60 minutes," where they saw president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton sitting down. it was a joint interview. until last night's e
on the right. republicans really got absolutely crushed by gop primary voters. case in point was john mccain, standing right behind ted kennedy during that press conference. how did this come to pass? the november elections. we saw the numbers. it has been talked about and talked about since then, the fact that latino voters have been going up as a percentage of the electorate and republicans got fewer than they have in three presidential elections. so it was a real wake-up call we're told, particularly to republicans like john mccain and lindsey graham of south carolina, who had kind of been working on comprehensive immigration reform on and off again. lindsey graham called chuck schumer. they had the first of five meetings. some were after the election. and they set in motion this process, a timetable to have principles now, the end of january, legislative language in march and they hope to have some kind of vote in the senate before the august recess. >> let's talk about the timing of this announcement here. the president was -- he's going to go to vegas tomorrow and is supposed to ou
durbin of illinois and bob menendez of new colorado's l bennet. republicans are john mccain, south carolina's lindsey graham, marco rubio of florida and jeff flake of arizona. this comes as president obama flies to las vegas to outline his vision for immigration. senator durbin says immigration reform, a comprehensive plan is long overdue. >> we are committed to a comprehensive approach to finally in this country have an immigration law we can live with. we've virtually going for 25 years without a clear statement about immigration policy. that is unacceptable in this nation of immigrants. >> reporter: the plan also calls for easier entry for immigrants who have math, science and engineering skills. bill? bill: there is a lot of politics laced to this entire issue. how do the politics figure into this proposal, steve? >> reporter: first it comes during an important window of opportunity before the midterm elections of 2014 get underway, before all the campaigning gets underway. it comes just after president obama was reelected partly because of the strong support of latinos, the fa
party and of cuban descent. he will be influential. john mccain campaigned against george w. bush in 2000, a long time advocate of immigration reform is big advocate of this. democrats almost every case on this bipartisan committee as well as in the senate are expected to follow the president's lead whatever he outlines tomorrow many they're on board with that agenda. the big question and stumbling block has been for decades is border security. how do you define it, how do you support it? this includes the use of drones, technology, all kinds of electronic surveillance and et cetera, critics say there is not enough. you need a fence and more troops on the border. how that gets legislated and sorted out we her from the president and house republicans will be influence in the outcome. house republicans want to be very much a part of passing this legislation this time. jamie: i would love to see our troops continue to work down there. that would be so helpful. carl, thanks. jon: for more on the immigration reform plan let's bring if karl rove, former chief visor and deputy chief of s
for illegal immigrants already in the country. senators john mccain and dick durbin say it's an issue which both sides are determined to compromise. >> how can we convince the republicans to a path to citizenship? >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons. and we've got to understand that. second of all, we can't go on forever with 11 million people living in this country in the shadows of an illegal status. we cannot forever have children who were born here, who were brought here by their parents when they were small children that live in the shadows as well. so i think the time is right. >> we are trying to work our way through some very difficult issues, but we are committed to a comprehensive approach to finally in this country have an immigration law that we can live with. we're putting as a high priority the unification of families, to make sure that families have a chance to come together. >>> the president has just outlined his own
of that attack, did that interview really offer the real answers for them or was it politics? john cornyn of texas joins us now live on the curvy couch. good to see you. >> good morning. >> gretchen: i'm sure you saw the interview. the fist half talked just about their friendship. i was like, i hope they ask about libya. after the commercial break, they did talk about benghazi. were the answers sufficient for you? >> it seems like this is more of a pr initiative than an effort to get to the bottom of things. i know i watched the hearings some months after the incident and secretary clinton said, what's the big deal here? or words to that effect. the big deal is four americans lost their lives. we ought to be about trying to figure out how do preprevent that from happening again and how do we hold the people who were responsible accountable? >> steve: sure. do you think we're ever going to get to the bottom of this? >> i hope our friends in the house of representatives will not let this go and will get to the bottom of it. it's important to our national security. it's important to protect
